Autumn 2019 Writing for Self-Discovery Workshops with Alison Clayburn
Sat 9 Nov 2019 to Sat 9 Nov 2019
Small group workshops facilitated by Alison Clayburn (M.A. Creative Writing for Personal Development) which use creative writing to explore both personal and collective responses to a common theme, and then produce creative nonfiction, poetry or story. The theme for Autumn 2019 is 'Attachments'. The final workshop on 9th November explores 'obsession '.

We all have attachments. We relate, separate and obsess. We will explore the nature of our attachments, what are they and who or what are they with? How do we feel about our relationships, chosen or obligatory, past or present, and separation, whether by choice or force of circumstance? To who or what are - or were - we attached to the point of obsession, and why?

We will look at our attachments in a variety of ways, using reflective writing and idea sharing. We will then write a unique piece of personal poetry or prose – or both!

Ideas will be shared in confidence and draft pieces feedbacked. The group will be small, confidential and supportive.

Workshops take place on Saturdays at 1.30pm - 4.30pm on the following days:

September 14 2019: relationship
October 12 2019: separation
November 9 2019: obsession

Location: Canada Water Library (next to Canada Water bus/train/tube station) Rotherhithe London SE16.

Cost: £90 for three, £70 for two, if booked together. £40 for one. The booking deadline is three days ahead of each workshop.
